BEKAL FORT

          The Bekal fort in Kasargod is an imposing structure standing on a headland that runs into the Arabian sea. Over 300 years old, the fort was built by Shivappa Naik of the Ikkeri dynasty. It was occupied by Haider Ali in 1763 AD and later came under British control. Just outside of the fort there is a mosque built by Tippu Sultan. At the entrance is an Anjaneya temple and in the middle is an observation tower. There is a structure from where one can view the sea. There are many underground passages too. The magazine inside the fort is closed to the public. Some of the nearby places of tourist interest are Pallikere beach, Bekal Hole aqua park, Kappil beach, Chandragiri fort, Chandragiri Cruise, Anandashram, Ananthapura lake temple, Valiyaparamba backwaters (an enchanting resort fed by four rivers and dotted with numerous little islands) and Ranipuram.
